Paperpile for iOS and Android (private beta) 📱


We’ve identified the problem, could reproduce it and just pushed and update (it’s server side, so you don’t need to install a new version).


Yes, the error seems to be gone!


Hi Stefan,

I love Paperpile, and have been using for 3 years now! I filled in the form for the old iOS beta and was told that this release was coming soon. I just got the new iPad + Apple pencil (for grad school, yay!) and would love to try this new beta out and give feedback.



When do you expect to add users to this beta that were a part of the previous beta? I can’t even log into the current app…


Users of the previous beta are being invited progressively, so that we can fix any issues that may occur before they affect a larger number of users.


Hello. I signed up for the original beta, and filled in the form for the new beta, but I haven’t received any invite yet. It would be great to test the new beta. Thanks!


4 posts were split to a new topic: Export annotations on mobile



Probably a stupid question.

When I make annotations on my Android tab they do not seem to save. To get from the PDF back to the paperpile front screen I am just pressing back on my tab as there does not seem to be a back to paperpile button (or at least I cannot see one) like there is on the desktop version.

Is this me doing something wrong or is this a bug?

The annotations I have made on my desktop have shown up on my tablet so it seems to work that way round.



Hi Stefan,

I was part of the first beta programme, and received an invitation to fill in the form for this new beta, which I did. Since then I have not heard anything. Is that to be expected?




I’d like to participate. I filled out the form a while back.


I’d like to participate in this! I have just filled out the survey. thanks.


Hi, thanks for the invitation. I installed the beta on my iPhone, thinking I could also install it on my iPad but it looks like I need a separate invitation to do so. It looks great on the iPhone but to really test it realistically as I would use it, the iPad version would be better. Could I trouble you for another invitation?



Thanks for that warning. So I will go straight to the iPad when I finally get an invitation!


I really want to participate. Filled the form months ago…


Me too… It’s been around a year I think…


Hi, I have participated in the questionnaire months ago as well, but I did not have the chance to use the app and I have filled the questionnaire again.
Please, let me know if I have to do something else.


I don’t believe that the handwriting (using apple pencil) syncs with the beta web PDF viewer…


First impression: on install it initially told me I had no papers in my library; but when I hit refresh it quickly filled them all in.

Does the new beta give me a way to add papers to Paperpile from my phone?


Lately I’m seeing some ghost entries in the iOS app. They say “no journal” and appear blank. I labeled them with a unique tag, but I don’t see them back on the desktop app. My internet here is a bit sluggish, so that might be the cause, but I ensured that sync was complete on both sides and the ghost entries are still there…


Hi I would like to see a sharing button so that a paper can be quickly shared after it is searched. Currently the sharing interface is not very great.
